Draft policies on contracts available for review and comment
As part of the university's continued implementation of cost-containment policies, the policy implementation team is currently working on two new contracts policies. The first will help mitigate risk to the university by establishing protocols employees must follow before entering into a contract for goods and services received or provided by the university. The second will ensure proper signature authority of those entering into contracts on behalf of the university, including contracts with no dollar value.
Before the policies become effective in late January, Pacific faculty and staff are invited to review and comment on the draft contract policies at a new Policies Review SharePoint site. The comment period will close Jan. 21, 2019.
You can contact members of the committee at email@example.com with general questions or to request a meeting with your department or committee to learn more about the new policies.
The remaining cost-reduction policies being developed by the President's Advisory Council for implementation by July 2019 will address technology purchasing; travel; and alcohol, meals and catering. Along with the new mobile device policy implemented Oct. 31, these new policies enable Pacific to reduce expenses and ensure good stewardship of university resources through consistent, universitywide approaches to business functions.
